How's that for alliteration? :)

Anyhow, results of my scan show I may have cancer.  May have.  If so, it's at such an early stage that there's nothing to worry myself over.  Had a biopsy this morning - which wasn't the most fun ever - to confirm the presence or absence of any cancerous tissue.

I am, however, going to need surgery no matter what, because my prostate is causing quite an obstruction.  I suppose the good news on that score is, if there's any cancer they can kill two birds with one stone.

Further tests to follow, because there's also blood in my urine, which as we all know, shouldn't be there.

Should know more in a couple of weeks.

We will be thinking of you. My husband also had the turp procedure about 2 years ago and all went well. I am sure you are in good hands.

Thank you, all.

Worst case scenario, I'm going to be sore for a bit. I'd rather not be, but them's the breaks. 😃

Thank you, everyone. I'm more annoyed with the situation than anything else; It's all going to be fine, everything will be under control and I'm not in the least worried. What really hacks me off is, we have a lot of other stuff to deal with, Claire isn't in the best of health herself and me being out of action for a while is only going to add to her burden.

Still, at least I'll be up and around after a while, so there's that, at least. Better being above ground than below. 😁

If it's any consolation my friend, my husband had bladder cancer that spread to his prostate and was stage four, had chemo (and took it like a champ), had surgery and was back to work in 6 months. That was nearly 5 years ago now and he's still kicking. Doc said he could live for another 40 years. LOL.

Keep that positive attitude - it makes all the difference :) I'll keep you in my prayers.

Laurie

Thanks, mate. Latest news is, I go for a bladder biopsy next Monday. Having had one before, I can confirm they aren't the most fun way to spend a morning and the view inside my bladder is dead boring. No fish or submarines, no scuba divers or coral reefs. Which is, I guess, a good thing but not very interesting to look at.

Haha! I get you! I am recovering from a nasty staph infection on my ankle. I was only hospitalized for 3 days, but I've seen enough of the inside of one to last me several more years.

My dad had prostate cancer just over twenty years ago. He's 85 now and still doing okay.

That's great to know. A doctor once said, if you had to pick one, prostate cancer would be the one to go for. I reckon you lot won't be getting rid of me any time soon.

Mind you, I could get run over by a bus but there you go. 😁

You should be ashamed of yourself. I was hoping for a flail tank at the very least. :P

Not seen it, mate. Sounds painful, though. As does the film. ;)

It was a pretty funny moment in the movie. He was chasing down leads trying to find the guy who created him so he could fix him. He found one guy at a hockey rink, and had injured him so that the guy was dragging himself across the ice, bleeding. He was several meters behind him on the Zamboni, screaming at him to tell where the guy was or "you'll get death by Zamboni... in 5 minutes!" Paraphrasing.

I like Zambonis but I couldn't eat a whole one. 😁

A flail tank?

See me and the tank museum have this deal...

I don't try and "borrow" the displays, they don't use me as target practice during tankfest

Just got back from my bladder examination.

Wowee, that wasn't fun at all.

Good news is, nothing untoward there.

Next up, kidney examination via ultrasound. At least it's not invasive.

I've had one done every year since I had a Kidney Stone back the end of 2009, and it's very easy, and non-invasive.

Oh, and good to hear the Bladder past inspection. 😉

The doc said in most cases the bladder and kidney checks don't show up any problems and blood in the urine is just one of those things.
